West Virginia is home to many trails and FKT challenges. Of the 22 posted routes and variations, 12 do not have posted women’s times (54.5%), leaving plenty of opportunity to claim space on these trails.
In 2022, FKTs were split evenly between men and women, each posting four new FKTs (50%). There were not non-binary or mixed gender team FKTs claimed in this state.
If you want to set an FKT on a route that does not have a posted women’s FKT, you should search for known times on Strava and Google.
